Cowboys' Williams: 'I blame myself'
IRVING, Texas -- A few days after saying he would perform better if given more opportunities, Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Roy Williams reversed field.
Williams said Wednesday that the onus is on him to earn more opportunities. He has only one catch in each of the past two games, during which he has had four passes fall incomplete after hitting him in the hands.
Quarterback Tony Romo threw only seven passes to Williams in wins over the New Orleans Saints and Washington Redskins.
Romo's only interception of December was a ball that ricocheted off Williams' hands to Redskins safety Reed Doughty. After Williams dropped a perfect throw during a two-minute drill before halftime, Romo didn't look his way again Sunday night.
"You know I have to get the confidence of my quarterback, because I didn't get a look after the first half," Williams said. "I didn't get a look in the second half. That's telling me that my quarterback has lost confidence in me, and so has the coordinator as far as calling plays for me.
"That's not on them. I don't blame them. I blame myself. I've got to get my crap together and try to help this team win some games in the playoffs."
